GENERIC REMOTE SENSING ALGORITHMS FOR LAKES, RIVERS AND COASTAL WATERS: DO THEY EXIST?
 
Increasingly remote sensing is being used to detect and monitor some optical water quality aspects of lakes, rivers and coastal waters. As soon as a radiative transfer based bio-optical model is used for(both forward and inverse) modelling, problems arise in determining which inherent optical properties should be used as an input. More advanced models use the specific inherent optical properties as an input. These (S)IOP's are variable between water types. This paper will present practice and theory on approaches to develop generic algorithms for both airborne and satellite remote sensing of estuarine and coastal waters. Examples of aircraft imaging spectrometry and of MOS and SeaWiFS will be presented, using matrix inversion techniques, as well as more traditional spectral band ratio algorithms.
